make a difference

change the world for the better
Have you ever learned about something terrible that is going on in the world, but feel there's not much you can do about it, it's so far away or removed from your influence? I often do. So Natasha of Maw Books has yet again earned my awe and admiration. She's making a difference, in the case of genocide happening right now in Darfur. I didn't know much about the problems in Sudan until I started seeing the books Natasha's read on her blog. For this entire month, she will be reading and writing in her own campaign for Darfur. You can participate by letting others know about it, donating to the cause, reading a book about it, sponsoring Natasha's reading (money goes straight to a charity organization of your chioce) and in many other ways as well! Read all about it here and here.

This is such a good idea, even in general - picking an issue and integrating it into a reading blog. I'm going to think about this and see if I can do something similar. Thanks for pointing this out.

I've actually felt inspired to do the same myself, in the future.
